VISUS® is a German distributor of products for vision testing and market leader for vision training products in Germany. VISUS is based in Herrenberg (management + logistics) and Stuttgart (show room). Our name could not fit any better: Visus (Latin „videre“) means "seeing" or "the view“. Specialists of opthalmology and optometry in German speaking countries use the term Visus for "visual acuity".
